for obama care so blame them for your troubles. as jonathan allen writes, if they aren't aware of the law's upside or can't remember it amid the problems with the rollout, democrats will be holding on to a anchor rather than a buoy which leads us back to the presidential pr pitch and peter alexander outside the white house. you just heard the president's speech. do you think the bully pulpit has lost its power at this point? >> reporter: a lot of people who paid attention to the last couple of months for this white house feel they've heard events not too dissimilar to this multiple times. this is the reboot, 3.0. the white house feels strongly this is the time it's going to work. the president made it pretty clear, krystal, you can make fun of me or kind of give me a hard time or website a hard time but you can't give this law a hard time. what was noticeable was the standing ovation when he said this law, affordable care act is not going to be repeal as long as i'm president and that got everybody on their feet, people who benefit from the law at this time. one of the real focuses is the

though kentucky has a good website, she is still very weary of this law. her view is still obama care not going to help you win in kentucky. on the other hand in florida, you have charlie crist, now a democrat, running for governor there. he made one of his big issues the medicate expansion which is popular. florida has not allowed the medicaid expansion. and he thinks it's a winning issue with the democrats in florida. >> the website is working better but still underlying issues only just beginning to make head way like identity verification and enkolment data which is leaving some insurers and states like connecticut really uncomfortable and now looking for ways around the federal system, ways to enroll customers directly. this is how the new york times put it. some insurers have been inundated for calls for people who signed up for a health plan only to find the company has no record of it and others saying information was inaccurate or incomplete. this concern has only been building. insurers were alarmed on november 19th when the architect of the website said only 30 to 40% of th

off the terror watch list. frankly the nationalization immigration law, once you labeled someone on a terrorist, it's very difficult to take them off. and that did happen as you said in 2008, it took an act of congress. we actually had to pass legislation, condoleezza went to the hill and asked them to pass the legislation and finally president bush signed that law, signed that legislation into law. but today, i understand from many high ranking anc officials homeland security continues to treat some of them as needing a waiver to get into the united states, which is an embarrassment and what secretary rice said today, at the time, we can't allow president mandela, a man of his stature to be continue to be treated as a terrorist by the united states. we needed to do this and do it before he passed away. but also, we need to honor his memory today by also making sure that homeland security honors of legislation that secretary kerry and for that matter senator obama when they were both senators, helped to pass. so, yes, officially they are off the terror list but the way in which h

or anything like that. it's going to be the law of the land. so republicans really need to figure out, you know, how are they going to deal with that. i think as sort of things get worked out, as long as there are no more catastrophic problems, which is not out of the question, i mean, it could happen with price increases or people losing their insurance. i mean, that could happen. but as long as things go relatively normal, i don't see any kind of just bottoming out like you saw with bush. >> yeah, and there's a lot of cyclical aspects of that. jon ward, thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me, guys. >> you bet. up next, it turns out there was a lot more to paul walker than his charm and good looks. what we're learning about the heartthrob's heart of gold after his death. that's next. turn to roc® retinol correxion®. one week, fine lines appear to fade. one month, deep wrinkles look smoother. after one year, skin looks ageless. high performance skincare™ only from roc®. take skincare to the next level with new roc® multi correxion® 5 in 1, proven to hydrate dryness, il

at them and say that law is racist but you still see in america, african-american unemployment double that of white unemployment, you know we still have a problem. are these problems in some ways even more challenging to address and galvanize a moment around today than they were previously? >> i had the honor to ask mr. mandela with a his philosophy was on leadership. we think of him as this great president who took on enormous challenges, 27 years in prison and said his greatest lesson he learned as a young boy. he grew up very poor. he was a shepherd growing up. when he was leading sheep he would have to go to the back. you have to make sure they don't wander too far left or right. his greatest lesson on leadership, he led his flock from behind. an amazing humility to make sure no one strays too far. or back in america, employment, skills training and basic social safety nets to ensure every child thrives, we need more leaders with his humility to put their needs first and always make sure that they get to where they need to be and for children that's hopefully one thing we can leav
